I was a LPN six years before I became a registered nurse. as far as compensation for becoming a registered nurse for your time as a LPN usually depends on the employer. in 2009 when I became a registered nurse 2 years LPN was 1 year of RN experience for pay purposes. but I have noticed now in 2012 none of your years as a lpn nurse count for pay purposes. this is mostly due to the economy being so bad and employers trying to save money I am currently in Ohio and I work for the Cleveland Clinic which is supposedly the four number for hospital in the country

When I was interested in Riverside's LPN program, the recruiter told me that for every 3 yrs LPN experience you get 1 year of RN experience (for pay purposes and jobs that want experience). I am not sure if it is rule of thumb for all of Hampton Roads or just the Riverside health system.

well personally I believe even if you are not compensated for your years has a licensed practical nurse that experience is valuable and you will be better prepared as a RN to tackle day today responsibilities. and I think I am a better register nurse because of the things I had to go through as the licensed practical nurse-
